Subject[RFC! 10/13] Char: nozomi, fix tty_flip_buffer_push
From
Date
Especially on this I would like to see feedback. Unlock and lock the
spinlock just around the tty_flip_buffer_push would be much more easier, but
won't it break anything?

nozomi, fix tty_flip_buffer_push

tty_flip_buffer_push call may deadlock when invoking it while holding
spinlock used in e.g. throttle too. Nozomi sets low_latency tty and that
means, that ldisc flush will be called immediately and it can call some
nozomi functions back. Solve it by invoking tty_flip_buffer_push after
releasing the spinlock.
